How Hidden Narratives Challenge Authority (3)

Our 2019 conference will take place at Francis Close Hall in Cheltenham, on Wednesday 26th June.  We now have a provisional list of nine speakers, so still have spaces available if you would like to make a presentation.  Please see below for Information for Presenters.

The aim of this conference is to explore the collision between public space as both a physical and digital concept and the private lives of individuals, considering themes of privacy, security, manipulation, coercion and insubordination and the ways in which these narratives are revealed.

We are particularly interested to hear about the impact of digital technologies on your research subject, data collection, methodology or approach to collaborative working.  As usual, we welcome contributions from a broad range of subjects, from those working across disciplinary boundaries, and from other universities as well as our own. Registration is open at Eventbrite and all places are free.

Information for Presenters

Please email one of us if you are interested in giving a fifteen to twenty minute presentation this year, including a brief outline of your proposed talk.  We will contact you for an informal conversation about your ideas.  On acceptance, we will request a title for your presentation, a short abstract (100 – 200 words) and similarly a short biography that we can publish on this website and in the conference handout.  It is helpful if presenters can register on Eventbrite immediately on acceptance to help us manage numbers.  Finally, we may ask if you would be willing to take part in a short video of questions and answers about your subject as these have been very popular in the past.
